One person is dead after an early-morning crash at Indiana 1 and Popp Road on Sunday.

At 6:23 a.m., the Allen County Sheriff’s Department responded to a crash, a statement from the department said.

The car was going north on Indiana 1 just north of Popp Road when it crossed the centerline, left the road and hit a concrete culvert.

The driver escaped with minor injuries and was able to run to a nearby home to call 911.

A female passenger in the front seat was pronounced dead at the scene. Another female in the back seat was ejected and taken to a hospital in serious condition, police said.

All three appeared to be juveniles, the sheriff’s statement said.

The identity of the deceased will be released by the Allen County coroner’s office.

Officers are continuing to investigate.
